The Clint Seymour Play Ball Fund Mission
The Clint Seymour “Play Ball” Fund will enable youngsters and adolescents to experience the joy and enthusiasm that can derive from the game of baseball and relationships built among teammates and mentors. In that positive environment, the game presents limitless opportunities for character development that enhances imagination, discovery and performance, all within the Mission of our Fund. We will fulfill our mission through contributing to baseball facilities as well as programs and resources consistent with our Mission.
A man was walking on the beach one morning after a storm had washed many starfish onto the beach.
“Young lady, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
“The tide is going out, and if I do not throw them in they will die,” she said.
“But young lady, don’t you realize that there are many miles of beach and thousands of starfish? You cannot possibly make a difference.” The young woman listened politely, then bent down and threw another starfish into the sea. “It made a difference for that one.”
Our Fund cannot impact every youth baseball player. But the ones we touch – through facilities or program or resources – will know that we made a difference for them.
